    2. How to Acquire High-Resolution Anatomic Ocular Tissue Information with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Leica Science Lab

      How to Acquire High-Resolution Anatomic Ocular Tissue Information with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Leica Science Lab
      OCT was first demonstrated in 1991 and was quickly recognized as an important tool in ophthalmology, rapidly becoming the standard of care in retinal diagnostics. Today, OCT is one of the most frequently ordered diagnostic tests. OCT technology is continually evolving, becoming increasingly popular in clinical and non-clinical imaging applications, including ophthalmic surgery, gastrointestinal imaging and interventional cardiology. OCT functions by a process very similar to ultrasound except, of course ...

    3. Advances in Surgical Microscopes Pave the Way to Improved Outcomes

      Advances in Surgical Microscopes Pave the Way to Improved Outcomes
      The new generation of devices can heighten resolution, integrate patient data with intraoperative images and allow for more exact localization of surgical targets. By integrating intelligence, video, intraoperative-imaging and navigation technologies, todays surgical microscopes provide surgeons with insights to improve their decision-making at the point of care and provide patients with the best possible outcomes. Surgical microscopes enable physicians to perform delicate surgery through tiny incisions. With a microscope, a ...

    4. How Intrasurgical OCT can Impact the Surgical Approach to Membrane Peeling

      How Intrasurgical OCT can Impact the Surgical Approach to Membrane Peeling
      When treating patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT), peeling of the inner limiting membrane (ILM) or an epiretinal membrane (ERM) is often indicated. Successful outcomes depend on precise surgical maneuvers as well as the surgeons experience in order to assess whether the entire membrane has been removed, as this is crucial for successful release of traction. Having as much visual information as possible helps the surgeon confidently perform membrane peeling. It ...

    5. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...
